    I have just a couple of runs with the Hatchet's on gravel and asphalt (since I save them for winter use). They grip very well on both surfaces, and on grass too. But they seem to wear faster than...

    That's the bearing adapter. It replaces the stock plastic adapter and is a "must have" item. It does not, however, replace the bearing itself.
    Optional, you can get an aluminium motor mount with a...

    My preferred winter tyres are the Duratrax Hatchet MT's (= Louise RC MT-Cyclone) due to the very soft compound. They are directional but I run them "backwards" to minimize understeer on snow and...

    The GTR shocks are great, but the rebound rate is one common issue (stock oil is 30wt). A lot of us install the variable damping kit (5461) with the piston holes drilled out to 1/16" and the metal...

    As Dakratfink said, I use the firm sway bar on the rear to reduce understeer on loose surfaces. The sway bars also greatly improves stability when cornering at higher speeds and turning from side to...

    Assuming the servo is OK, did the previous owner by any chance pack the diff housing with a lot of grease (possibly sticky marine grease)?

    No worries! :D
    I just wondered since most of the answers adresses the 4x4 model.

    You are posting in the Rustler 4x4 section, but the parts you've bought are for the 2WD - so which one do you have?

    For the TRX-6 I'd go for the 2700kV. The 2300kV is a 540 can and has much lower torque than the 550 can 2700kV motor.
    Be aware that the 2700kV has a 5mm axle so you can't go any lower than a 11T...

    Yep, the Max 10 120A ESC is still going strong with no heat issues. For a sensorless system it's very smooth, but the HW 3200kV motor tends to run a little hot on 3S so I mainly use 2S geared 14/52...

    For onroad use you may get away with using a 17T pinion, but watch the temps carefully!

    Frankly, I wouldn't go as far as calling the stock Ultra shocks garbage, but they definately need aluminium caps and 40-60wt oil. The stock plastic caps have been a well known weak point for a...

    Thanks a lot, Tommyjon.

    Funny thing is I installed exactly that bumper on my Defender three days ago! :lol:

    Great! Thank you very much. :thumbup:
    Metrically, that equals 95.3 and 88.9mm (height 11.1mm).

    But what about the length of the housing itself, without the screw tabs?

    The 2075X has the same specs as the 2075 (125oz-in of torque, 0.17sec/60). The only differences are the color of the case and the metal gears.
